Hear From Our Parents

The first thing we would like to say is that we have been incredibly happy at King´s and we have no regrets. Our children have been very happy and the teachers have been marvellous: attentive, caring and they clearly give their all to the children. In particular, we would like to thank the school for the incredible teachers that our children have had since they joined Soto, they have been nurturing and attentive, which is just what we needed. 

— Primary School parents

Thank you so much, for everything that you have done for our son over the last four and half years.  We are so proud of the young man that he has become and the confidence that he has developed in the exceptional learning environment that you create daily for our students.  He has certainly got the foundations to excel in Secondary school.  I know that he will always look back fondly on his Primary school education and for that we will always be grateful.

— Primary and Secondary parent

We would like to express our deep gratitude for the care and attention given to our child, during the challenging adaptation period at school by the teachers team at Pre Pre Nursery. We can really notice the impressive progress in the development of our child, including his behaviour at home after school and the significantly improved level of socialisation outside of the house.
